The long-term yield of agrowood crops depends largely on efficient weed control in the year of planting. The currently used methods either only allow for mechanical area maintenance between the planting rows or require additional cost-intensive manual work in the planting rows. Based on optical methods of plant recognition in the stand and GNSS-based field position determination, a module with actively controlled tools for automated weed control in the planting row is being developed in the SensoBa project. For full-area crop management, this will be combined with other tools for inter-row management and tested in the field on a standard tractor. For this purpose, plant detection sensors and data analysis methods will be optimised for use in agricultural timber plantations, and suitable geometries and efficient active kinematics for the tool will be developed. In addition, a system for GNSS-supported navigation is being developed for reliable field cultivation at higher driving speeds. The sensor-actuator module is a basic component of an expandable efficient multi-row maintenance system.
